Some injuries have consequences that continue to hurt. That’s not unforgiveness, just reality.
Just continue to pray for those who’ve hurt you, however you feel.
Father help me to recover where injury goes beyond ordinary forgiveness and my heart are in some way crushed, and my life changed and devalued.
Help me to find a way to forgive when I cannot smile or encounter the offending persons with warmth because they have destroyed something in me.
Father please help me to forgive when I cannot forgive…and I cannot forgive because they do not understand how badly they have hurt me, and do not seek in any real way to acknowledge or try to heal the hurt they imposed on me. And even when I tried to tell them from the bottom of my heart but they would not listen, please help me to forgive.
Father help me to forgive when those who hurt my life do not even remember how badly they have wounded me, and go on with their lives without concern, while I remain still held in some kind of time capsule with the consequences of their unfeeling and uncaring and attack.
Father, help me to forgive those who wounded me by ignoring my needs and requests, yet who desire me to ignore their offence, and expect me to respond to their hints or manipulations while they make no concessions or apologies. Help me to forgive those who impose their own conditions and rules upon me, without respecting that my hurt is real and radical, while they make me feel that they only desire our capitulation without justice, apology, or generosity from them.
Father please free me, in forgiveness that comes from Your Son, innocent, and murdered, but forgiving.
